Stewie sent me these questions back in April. I hope I got them right!

When, how and why did you get involved with worm bins?
I have always thought about composting, but was never really exposed to it. Now that we own our own house, I thought it was time we started getting involved. I saw an ad in the paper for a workshop about composting offered by the City of Raleigh. I sat through 45 minutes of learning about the math and science that is involved with composting, thinking “This isn’t for me!” until Bianca touched on vermicomposting in the last 10 minutes of her talk. I was hooked. Ever since then, I’ve been encouraging others to get involved and helping people like you and Sean get your own bins started.

How did you fall in love with David Bowie?
I’ve been obsessed with David Bowie since at least 12, but I don’t remember how it all started. I know it was it was pre-Labyrinth. I really have no idea what started it. I’m not sure what the attraction was. Except that he’s GORGEOUS and HOT and I LOVE HIM!!

When you were little, what was your favorite pastime and why?
I don’t remember much about my childhood but I did love exploring the woods outside my home in Independence, Virginia. It was so full of wonder and imagination. The other really cool thing was getting up on Christmas mornings. I’m not sure what my dad did to make it all seem so magical, but boy, it was. It seemed that everything was coated with fairy dust or something. I only hope I can capture some of that for the little person we’re growing right now!

How did you meet your husband?
Dave and I met through a mutual friend when I was dating the evil ex-boyfriend. I didn’t give him a second thought because I was with somebody, but once I moved out on my own, I had a housewarming party and he showed up with my friend. That’s when I noticed how cute he was. The cute part to this story is that my mutual friend, Stephanie, met her husband through me! He was my boss at the time. Yay!

Is there anything that people assume about you that’s totally wrong?
I drive a Subaru Forester and I tend to say things like “You shouldn’t litter” and “Don’t let the water run when you’re brushing your teeth.” So my car and my “green streak” has lots of people thinking I’m either a lesbian or a vegetarian or both. I am not either.


Thanks Stew! It was fun even though I was half a year late.

So if you want to play along and now be interviewed by me, please leave me a comment or send an email saying: “Interview me.”
* I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
* You will update your weblog with the answers to the questions.
* You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
* Then others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions and so on.

Cristin came over for dinner on Monday night for a Bowie movie-fest, sort of. I was thinking we’d watch the DVD commentary on Labyrinth, but instead we watched several of the “making of” docs.
David and Cristin
And then I ran around for like an hour copying some CDs for her while she played on the computer and entertained the cats. And then we watched the first 30 minutes of The Hunger, which is not really very good, not to mention we watched the ancient VHS copy-of-a-copy I own that is very bad quality. But we got to see cute, young David Bowie in the shower scene, so woo-hoo for us! We were up too late but it was fun indeed!!

I made us dinner, sauteed chicken with a lemon-rosemary sauce served with rice and scalded green beans. Yummers!

And Cristin brought over some awesome and chocolatey ice cream cupcakes from Maggie Moo’s. I ate two because I am unstoppable.

And the cats seemed content to amuse us with their funny sleeping positions.

I think maybe Emma Thompson should play David Bowie in a movie about him.

Don’t forget to set your DVR to catch David Bowie on SpongeBob this weekend!
David Bowie as Lord Royal Highness

From BowieNet (October 5th):

Above is the very handsome and really rather important Lord Royal Highness, special guest star of upcoming SpongeBob SquarePants episode: SpongeBob’s Atlantis SquarePantis.

Apparently, when David Bowie was first shown preliminary sketches of LRH, he exclaimed: “That’s great, I wish I had dreamt up that look back in 1974!”.

One nod Lord Royal Highness makes to the real life Bowie is the subtle touch of one green eye and one blue, though, as David has been at pains to point out in the past, his are not actually different colours.

Anyway, we’ve been telling you about this episode since David Bowie first expressed his excitement in his online journal, (exactly a year ago) at being given the opportunity to voice the part of LRH. (10.05.2006 NEWS: SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS IN NEW BOWIE JOURNAL)

As you know, (05.21.2007 NEWS: ATLANTIS SQUARE PANTS TO AIR IN NOVEMBER) SpongeBob’s Atlantis SquarePantis airs on the eleventh of next month, (more detail of broadcast schedule nearer the time) with the DVD of this episode being made available, in North America at least, just two day later on the 13th.

Aside from the DVD there are already a couple of books available relating to this episode, (that’s one on the right, above) not to mention a plethora of games for pretty much every gaming platform, on sale from the end of the month.

As the man himself said in aforementioned journal: “Watch out. Or at least watch.”

Science Fiction Double Feature!!

Had a great time at the Rocky Horror with Cristin and Kerri. Lots of crazy insane people out, especially because it was the Friday prior to Halloween. You can see the pictures at Cristin’s photo stream (start here) but here is my favorite.

These two had terrific Hot Fuzz costumes – they nearly won the Costume Contest. I was trying to get them to look like they’d arrested me but they actually seemed uncomfortable with that.

And here’s us girls!! Damn we’re cute!

There are more great pictures so follow the link above to see all of the action shots from the film, not to mention the boy who looks like David Bowie at 15!!

What a fun Friday night I had! Cristin came over after work and we decided it was good enough weather to attempt to recreate the back cover of Ziggy Stardust. It took us over an hour to get ready and we were so dolled up by the time we left the house! We headed up to Brier Creek for the photo shoot as we needed one of those red British telephone boxes. Imagine our dismay when we discovered that the damn doors don’t open! What? Why?!?!? I was so annoyed I was laughing.

Regardless, we looked hot. So we went to Champa for sushi dinner. Yum.

After dinner, we met up with Kerri and went to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show. More on that to come!
